Canonicus sent a Herald to Plymouth, who left a bundle of arrows enclosed in a Rattlesnake's skin, the custoMary challenge to war. The Governor despatched a messenger in return, bearing a skin stuffed with powder and bullets, assuring the chieftain also that if he had shipping, instead of troubling him to come so far as Plymouth to gratify his wish for fighting, he would have sought him in his own country. And furthermore, whenever he did come, he would find the English ready for him. This resolute message had the desired effect, and the Sachem's superstition confirmed it. He refused to touch the skin, fearful of some mysterious injury, and would not even suffer it to remain in his hut.--Thatcher's Lives of Indians, Vol. 1, page 181. [P. 11.]
